RUFF JUSTICE: Home Invasion Suspect Now Accused In More Local Burglaries

As expected, additional burglary charges have been filed against one of the three men who are charged with severely beating a 77-year-old woman during a January 9 home invasion in Wrigleyville.

Two new burglary counts have been filed against 18-year-old Eli Ruff in connection with break-ins at other homes in the immediate area.

Ruff is now charged with burglarizing two greystones in the 3700 block of N. Lakewood—one on December 22 and the other on January 1.

DNAInfo Chicago offers delicious details of the break-ins today. In the December 22 incident, Ruff “snapped photos of himself wearing the victim's clothing, smoking weed and flashing gang signs,” DNAInfo reports, citing prosecutors.

Atta boy, Eli.

We reported exclusively on January 11 that Chicago police were specifically looking at connections between Ruff and a series of recent burglaries.

Investigators' curiosities were piqued when they learned that Ruff had been arrested three weeks before the home invasion after an area woman filed trespassing charges against him and another man who allegedly pounded on her basement door in the middle of the night during what the victim thought was an attempted break-in.

Ruff’s bond has been increased to $2.5 million in light of the new charges.

  3. The pieces of shit that beat up that poor woman should be locked up for life. Anyone who does such a heinous thing is beyond redemption. When (because we know it won't be if) they get out, can you imagine what they will do then? Murder will certainly be on their agenda by then.

    I pray this poor woman heals, not only physically, but mentally, too. It is an abomination that she (or anyone) had to endure such terror and pain by the likes of these worthless thugs.

  4. Thanks to CWB Chicago for giving us the information that will help us make the right decisions and stay safe. I just wonder if the Tribune and the like will ever figure out if they just give us the news we may buy their newspapers. They can blame falling circulation on the web but it was the content that had me cancel. I just donated the money I used to spend on the Tribune to CWB Chicago with my thanks!!

  5. Why just "Burglary" & not attempted murder / assault?

  6. Still only 2.5 millions bond? I'm sure he will have some family member post the $250,000 for his release!

  7. He lives 7500 south so whats he doing here except to rip off/beat/rob local people. They're not patronizing local businesses. They come here to pillage.

  8. Doubtful that his family will come up with $250,000 cash. 2.5M is a pretty high bond. The reason he is up here when he lives at 7500 south is 1 he has a free monthly ventra card and 2 to commit crime. Whoever said it hit the nail right on the head. It's a straight shot north on the red line, do your dirt, jack some dude for his i phone do a few burglaries smack an old lady arround then jump back on the red line and head home. It's not surprising Wriglyville is a target rich environment.
